Campaign Buttons Are Now Available
By Todd Swindell and Michael Petrelis

We're pleased to announce the New Solidarity union printing shop over in Oakland has manufactured beautiful #‎VotePetrelis‬ campaign buttons for us and they are now available for supporters and voters to wear.

A word about New Solidarity. We made many inquiries for an affordable union shop in San Francisco and also checked out commercial printers to get price quotes and here's what we learned.

There are no such unions shops here that produce finished, quality buttons. One shop said they would print the campaign images on paper but that we'd have to finish them ourselves, after purchasing button-making machine. Commercial venues such as Office Max and Kinkos had high prices and would out-source the job.

The price quote from New Solidarity was the best deal around, so we sent them out graphic design and we now have 250 fabulous looking shining campaign buttons to distribute. They may even become collectors' items, so get yours soon!
